Ok, I've been following Style Scout for a few weeks now and sometimes it feels like I'm reading one of those nice fashion magazines like Elle or Vogue! Ha! What a gorgeous personality! What a beautiful photo! I really like how the fashion styles, age and personality of each person featured is strikingly different! For example, she only spent chump change on her dress yet she looks like a million bucks! Thanks for making this so enjoyable! Keep up the great work!
